ahhh yes the good days

45 mins to do a u turn

and 10 mins chasing the gearshift around the car to change gear , not to mention the one way windows { uasually down } but hey they made a great jeep


The steering was a bit heavy at parking speeds.


Different gearbox to a Lada - it was a column-change box, but with a floor mounted lever - quite slick, really - except when the rod broke and left me with only third and fourth for 200 miles - got there, though.


Never had a window problem - very low-geared though, about ten turns top-to-bottom.


And the 'unofficial' hand-throttle.


And the double-skinned floor at the back, almost a foot of hidden volume underneath it.....
